Consider the last 9 years – the fire and how many of the original houses of Los Alamos were lost. The theater and the sense that the community center will never be the social agora it once was. The demolition of the Municipal Building. The planned demolition of the LA Apartments and the buildings on Trinity site. The three houses, again from the original stock, for the sake of street widening. Proposed demolition of Aspen Elementary and the bulk of the high school classrooms.
Add to that the number of businesses that have closed which had been here since time out of mind.
At what point does Los Alamos cease to be? More importantly, at what point does Los Alamos cease to be comfortably familiar to those who have known and loved it for 20, 30, 40 or more years?
For some, the effect of the sense of loss is cumulative. There are people in Los Alamos who have known and loved Los Alamos far longer than I, who participated in the creation of this town, who essentially stand to lose everything they worked for. How much should they be asked to sacrifice for “the greater good?”
